"It's very unique but because I'm a girl literally everyone I have met spells it Bobby and it really annoys me." May. 18, 2020:
"Like other commenters I too hated my name when I was little because I got teased for having a boys name.
I was nicknamed BJ by several close family members.
I went into the US Navy and with sailors you don?t want BJ for a nick name!
Now I am 62 and I?m comfortable as my given name Bobbie Jo.
My Mom went to High School with a gal named Bobbie Jo she liked her and the name! ;)" Nov. 11, 2018:
"My name is Bobbie. I use to hate it as a child because I wanted a pretty feminine name like my friends and my sisters. However, now that I am older I can appreciate the uniqueness and the meaning behind it. My father is Robert and so I was named after him. I haven?t had any bad experiences other than people wanting to spell my name ?Bobby? or ?Bobbi?. I also don?t like when people say, ?Is your name Roberta?? Or I?ll get, ?Bobbie? No what?s your real name?? Like people don?t understand my name is just Bobbie! I get it though it?s really not popular especially where I live, I was the only female Bobbie to ever attend my elementary, middle and high school. I?ve even had some college professors thrown off by it. However, I have met one other woman named Bobbie. She was one of my patients and she was born in 1934, so I thought it was really cool to see that such a unique name has journeyed so far between time. All in all I like my name and I think it would be cool to eventually see more little girl Bobbie?s around." Apr. 19, 2018:
"My name is Bobbie I had a choice to be called Barbra and I stuck with Bobbie. I stuck with it because I wanted people to know me for me and all my friends love my name :p" Jan. 15, 2014:
"My name is Bobbie. When I was little, it was awkward when one of my little girl friends would ask their parents if Bobbie could spend the night. They would have to explain that I was a girl. Now that I am grown, I love my name. It is unusual for a female, and to me it is special. My middle name is Jean, many people call me Bobbie Jean, or Bobbie Jo...." Mar. 22, 2013:
"My name is Bobbie, and I used to hate it, because I felt that it was boyish, I'm named after my Grandmother, and now, I love my name, and am very honored to be named after someone as amazing as my grandmother. :)" May. 17, 2009:
"People would always misspell it when I was younger. When I was in junior high high and would call a friend for the first time, their family would tease them because "a boy was calling". It took a little while for people to get use to it...including me. Now it's more about people calling me the wrong name. Debbie or Bonnie apparently look a lot like Bobbie. So, I call them on it and tell them to call me Bob." Nov. 16, 2008:
"I used it hate my name because I was named after my father I did not hate my father just the name because everyone always said thats a boys name, I did have a friend in ele that was also names Bobbie, now that I am grown it is not so bad I live in the middle east and there are a lot of people that have trouble with it but not the Brits."
